We have spent a year now dealing with the unexpected, changing gears. We have changed how we dress (some masks are functional, others fashionable), where we go, who we are with and even how we worship. It has not been easy. At some point in the year, I began to wonder, if this IS normal. Isn't life a series of unexpected events? Is it possible that our longing for the past can block us from enjoying today, and welcoming the graces of tomorrow? Each day is a gift. May God keep reminding me of that!
